2) Projects & Donations: times to work on these projects may be flexible; see individual tasks for details. Due dates/deadlines may apply for certain specific jobs.

3) In-Studio Classes & Filming Days (June 19-27): there are a multitude of time-specific jobs that range from setting up, staffing stations, checking dancers in, escorting them down the red carpet, cleaning studio spaces between filming groups, and selling merchandise.

Consult the schedules for Costume Fittings and Filming days/times to know when might be most convenient to volunteer (possibly for a time during your dancer's designated time slots?!).

2020 "Showcase Season" (in lieu of recital)...

~In-Studio Class/Rehearsals, Filming, and Volunteering in Detail!~
Here are details you NEED TO KNOW to participate in our Showcase (in lieu of recital this year, due to present circumstances).

We have always firmly believed and had plans to still do a recital, in some way/shape/form. Dancers and instructors deserve a way to show off and share all the work they've still been putting in during these times, especially! But things will be different this year. The plan in lieu of recital is to film the dances of each class style/level and have a digital watch party of the show for dancers and friends/families at the end of June!

I want to keep you all updated on the timeline and details as they have to change for our 2020 Showcase Season. As you well-know, we find ourselves in ever-changing circumstances due to so much regulation around the COVID-19 situation. We have re-evaluated our present needs and reformatted scheduling for the weeks ahead in order to be able to successfully put on a Showcase experience for our dancers. I thank you for your flexibility, time, and understanding that we are doing everything we can to be able to fulfill services as well as to give our dancers the opportunity to successfully carry out something to be proud of, and for us to return to our beloved studio space!

If you have questions, please direct them to your instructor or an administrative assistant, in order to allow me time to work on administrating the details that need to be in place, filming, and video-editing, in order to carry out this showcase season! Thank you!

-Ms. Lara, SBDA Director

(Those who are not performing in showcase, we will contact you after the Showcase is over to coordinate pick up.)
